West Hollywood is a city between Beverly Hills
. West Hollywood's boutiques, artsy corners, and quaint eateries work in concert to attract droves of pedestrians to the area; moreover, its bars and night clubs host a great deal of drinking and dancing and are consistently some of the most bustling in LA County. It has a huge population of gay men, though it is also known as one of LA's hubs for lesbian and queer culture more generally.
Residents of West Hollywood enjoy a very pedestrian-friendly experience. Santa Monica Blvd., one of its primary throughways, is lined with dozens of crosswalks intended to buttress commerce. Parking in West Hollywood can be a huge hassle, but residents receive permits that grant them exclusive rights to prime spaces. Most of the larger apartment complexes are also outfitted with private garages. Beyond apartment rentals, housing options also include the houses a little further from the city's main roads, which are densely organized but extremely posh.
Proximity to such sites of interest as the Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive shopping district, the Beverly Center mall, and Century City
is also a huge perk to living in the area. Primary arteries: Santa Monica Blvd., San Vicente Blvd., Sunset Blvd.
